Hi. I did homework on my family’s boat for the first time and learned about pulleys and gears. I hung a rope attached to a heavy toolbox on the bar above the door to go in.
Before I did that though I lifted the toolbox by itself once. But anyway after I lifted it I put the rope over the bar and pulled down. my dad and I found a pulley and I used that once.
But I found out that the clip on the pulley was too small to fit around the bar, and I had to use some rope to extend the clip. So, I made a loop and hooked it onto the bar and the clip. I tried that once.
It was a lot easier to use the pulley than when I lifted it straight up and when I put the rope over the bar without the pulley.
I learned it is easier to use a pulley than lift it straight up.That is what I learned that day.
